Save Money On Flights

The City Respectfully Returned The Proposed Pledge, And Sent Him More Money Than He Wanted, And Even The Ladies Of Goa On This Occasion Sent Him Their Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelets, And Other Jewels To Be Applied To The Public Service.

But the governor punctually restored all exactly as sent, having been amply supplied by the capture of a rich ship of Cambaya.

Having restored the castle to a better condition than before the siege, Don Juan de Castro sailed for Goa, leaving a garrison of 500 men in the castle under Don George de Menezes, with six ships to secure the coast. The city also was now better inhabited than ever, through the good usage of the governor to the Moors.

Don Juan de Castro returned from Diu to Goa on the 11th of April 1546, where he was received with universal demonstrations of joy, and was conducted into the city in a splendid triumph, prepared on purpose after the manner of the ancient Romans. The city gates and the houses of the streets he had to pass through were hung with silk, all the windows were thronged with women splendidly dressed, and every part of the city resounded with music and the din of cannon, all the ships in the bay being richly adorned with numerous flags and streamers. Don Juan entered the city under a splendid canopy; and at the gates his hat was taken off, and his brows adorned by a crown of laurel, of which likewise a branch was put into his hand.
